my sweet babies:)

3.5 mile run this morning on sore, stiff legs. They warmed up and behaved about a mile into the run…. thankfully. Daffodils are doing their thing, even in the dark morning light.

Grace had to get updated on her vaccinations this morning so off to my wonderful vets office we went! A friend of mine, Ben Mann, is an artist and was commissioned to do all of the artwork for the office. He surprised me and painted my dear, sweet Siberian Husky, McKenzie, into the scene that’s in the lobby. This vet saved McKenzie’s life when another had no idea what he was doing when she was initially diagnosed with diabetes and seemed to be guessing as to how to regulate her. He nearly killed her. Dr Johnson at Fairhaven Vet was our saviour! McKenzie died 4 years ago due to complications but I’ll always be grateful for the 10 years I had with her. I loved that I got to take a pic with Grace and McKenzie. 💜💜💜

19, 16, 4, and 1, please:)

🌩 16. Is there a character of yours who’s a real struggle to write/draw? Why do you think that is?

Ooh yeah, like I was saying, GLaDOS is tough for me to wrap my brain around.

But I’ve also been struggling with a solid design for Rainbow Core. I rarely have this problem. Most of my Portal designs I have a pretty clear idea of what I want them to look like and can get it down after one or two tries, but I’ve re-drawn Rainbow Core so many times and I just…why won’t you cooperate??? I have like one drawing of him on here and I’m not happy with it. >:<

🦋 4. Any minor characters that have either taken over or branched off into their own stories?

Mmmmmm I guess Glitchy kind of counts? Again, he’s not mine, but I really felt for the guy in Meet the Cores and I wanted him to show up in Testing Maintenance when I got around to writing it. He actually showed up in that much, much more than I ever planned him to. He was originally only supposed to be a quick cameo.

🕸 1. Who’s the oldest character of yours that you still use?

Oh goodness! That would be Pikacha (Cha for short). She’s not a Portal character, she’s a Pokemon character. She is the oldest OC I can remember making. I came up with her when I was 6 or 7-years-old because Pokemon was my favorite thing on the face of the planet and I still draw and RP with her sometimes.

Of my OCs she is the sweetest cinnamon roll. Too pure. I now have a headcanon that she will eventually evolve into an Alolan Raichu. <3

moony, wormtail, pun-foot, and prongs
  • alright so Sirius is always making puns
  • we all know this
  • and we know it started with those ‘sirius-ly’ puns
  • bc ofc it did
  • “Are you serious?”
  • “He’s not, but I am.”
  • “Omfg Pads, shut up.”
  • so Remus acts like he doesn’t enjoy them
  • (but secretly he’s dying on the inside)
  • it’s just he has an image to uphold and laughing at Sirius’s stupid puns will not help at all
  • so one day Sirius makes yet another horrible pun and Remus just can’t help it and snorts
  • and now Sirius knows Remus actually does enjoy his puns and sets out on a mission to make as many as possible
  • his constant puns start getting him in trouble in class
  • he gets detention one time for asking McGonagall why she’s acting so catty 
  • anyway so come fourth year Sirius realizes he’s hopelessly gay for Remus
  • and starts making puns to hit on him
  • and Remus the precious child he is is clueless to how Sirius feels, thinking that they’re just his normal stupid puns
  • until one night in the dorm
  • James gets back from Quidditch, and him and Sirius start discussing which position Sirius should try out for next year
  • Peter puts his two cents in, saying he thinks he’d like to play Chaser
  • so now the convo moves to Remus, who’s sitting on his bed, swallowed by an oversized jumper and flicking mindlessly through a book
  • James, still sweaty from practice, flops onto Remus’s bed
  • Remus is not amused
  • “What position do you think you’d play, Moony?”
  • Remus puts his book down and thinks about it
  • “I’d think I’d like to be a Keeper”
  • “Oh Rem you already are one” Sirius throws in with a wink
  • he immediately gets hit by a well aimed pillow on James’s part
  • Peter’s chuckling to himself 
  • and Remus just sits there quietly, blushing furiously from head to toe
  • bc he finally realizes that Sirius is hitting on him
  • and he smiles softly, fiddling with his sweater paws
  • and Sirius grins too, ignoring James’s groaning bc Remus looks fucking adorable okay
  • it’s all pretty gay and fluffy
  • and yeah
  • the end
  • Leo: happy birthday!!1!
  • Guang-Hong: thank you! I was starting to think you forgot.
  • Leo: why would you think that?
  • Guang-Hong: ...do they not teach you about time zones in the US?
  • Leo: ...
  • Leo: I feel like such a fool right now.
  • Guang-Hong: it's okay, you're still the best boyfriend ever.

If you ever feel sad just think about the fact that Alec Lightwood canonically wakes up every morning to the love of his life and his beautiful cat eyes, with the softest smile and probably the most adorable bed hair, and they probably have a few moments of peace and gentle morning kisses before a hurricane of blue and black hair comes running into their room and jumping up onto their bed. Just imagine our Alec Lightwood and our Magnus Bane, who both never thought they’d get to be here, wrapping their boys in a giant hug, pressing big kisses to the top of each of their heads and laughing softly, both still unable to believe that they got so damn lucky, that after all the heartache and pain they both went through, they finally got to have a love that felt like coming home, and they finally got to have a family…
